Photo of the week – Nyalas at the waterhole

Posted on Fri April 15, 2016.

This beautiful photo was captured from the sunken, underground animal hide at Indlovu River Lodge. Our guest Nettie is an amateur photographer, who was thrilled with the experience and the product of her time in the hide!

The nyalas tend to be shy animals, but once they got used to the hides, our guests were able to capture these beautifully striped animals at close range.  The stripes on their backs play an important role in their camouflage in the bushveld, and adds interesting patterns to a photograph.
